About the Film
Asylum-seekers from around the world continue to risk their lives by embarking on dangerous boat crossings in search of safe harbour. But what happens when the destination is as unwelcoming as the dangers left behind? Australia has implemented some of the strictest immigration laws in the world, and this film looks at the impact of these policies, which sees asylum seekers detained in facilities and left in limbo, sometimes for years.
